Cheap & Fun Daycare!
Posted by Jacklyn | Filed under Pooch Friendly Places
When I started looking for a daycare for Autumn, I had several key criteria that needed to be met. First of all, it had to have a good reputation as a caring and crate free doggy daycare service. Second, it had to be affordable. And third, it had to be somewhat close to my home and/or office. Lucky for me, I found all of three of these things at Puddle of Pooch. It’s affordable crate free doggy daycare with a reputation for being thoughtful and loving and it’s convenient to pretty much everything since it’s right by 85.
Puddle of Pooch is located at 1420 Mayson Street. If you’re heading from Buckhead towards the center of the city, it’s easy to hop off the Spring Buford connector and drop your precious pooch off. They’re open from 7am until 8pm most days. This is the only daycare service I’ve found that allows the dogs to go outside for extended periods of time during the day. There are so many good things about Puddle of Pooch it’s difficult to list them. So let’s start with the basics.
Crate free. I cannot express how happy this makes me (and Autumn, seeing as how her crate is far from her happy place). There are several crates in the back for dogs who need to be separated while they eat, which brings me to my next point.
You can bring your own food! Honestly, how awesome is that? I was paying $3 a day for Autumn to get a snack at her last daycare! Now, I know what she is eating is healthy and I know exactly how much food she is getting throughout the day.
The sweet owners, Erika and Bill, take the dogs outside. Outside! For extended periods of time! They’ve got a large yard in the back that is perfect for the puppies to play and get plenty of exercise.
I love this doggy daycare not only for the reasons listed above, but because they offer great care for an affordable rate. The more your pooch attends, the less you’ll have to pay. The owners are always looking for ways to help their loyal customers out. Here’s the price breakdown:
- 1 Day a Wk $18/day
- 2 Days a Wk $17/day
- 3 Days a Wk $16/day
- 4 Days a Wk $15/day
- 5 Days a Wk $14/day
Not only does Puddle of Pooch offer doggy daycare, but they also do grooming (Erika has been grooming for more than 10 years), boarding, and dog parties (on Saturday there was a doggy princess party!). You cannot go wrong with Puddle of Pooch, people. Go check them out and tell them Autumn’s mommy sent you!
